Quantum II is ideally suited to farms looking for quality feed through the summer months.

Quantum II MaxP® Proven Persistence: Armidale NSW

Quantum II MaxP® has proven over many years that it can survive challenging conditions. After 3 difficult seasons in Armidale, Quantum II MaxP® kept the most ground cover in a replicated trial against other commercial varieties (as shown in Figure 1).

What is the benefit of the proven persistance of Quantum II MaxP® to you?

  • Maintains high production in later years - due to higher plant numbers, this means more ground cover and less open ground where weeds normally thrive.
  • Saves re-sowing costs - being able to delay re-sowing is cost effective and ensures you don’t miss out on production while paddocks establish.

Proven Performance

Quantum II coupled with MaxP® endophyte changes the landscape in the continental tall fescue market. Recent trials conducted in Armidale NSW against other commercial varieties have Quantum II Max P® proving its superior performance. Download Quantum II MaxP® comparative trial here:
